Jodie Meeks motivated to reward Pistons for making him their 'No. 1 priority'

Jodie Meeks wasn't the No. 1 option for the scoring-starved Los Angeles Lakers last season, but Stan Van Gundy's lucrative offer and aggressive approach made clear he was the Pistons' top priority in free agency, from the get-go.

Jodie Meeks a 'perfect fit' for Pistons, Stan Van Gundy says

'We said going into the whole free agency thing what we wanted on the perimeter was high character, hard playing and can shoot the ball,' said Van Gundy after the Pistons' final summer league practice Thursday.

Stan Van Gundy on signing Jodie Meeks: 'We had to be very aggressive early on'

Stan Van Gundy on signing Jodie Meeks: 'We had to be very aggressive early on'

Stan Van Gundy spoke publicly about his new shooting guard for the first time Thursday. Did the Detroit Pistons overpay Jodie Meeks? That was the knee-jerk response armchair pundits had after learning of the three-year, $19.5 million deal on the first day of free agency. DBB's Sean Corp outlined why the move made sense from the start -- especially when you consider the rising salary cap and Meeks' versatility -- but even naysayers are slowly coming on board after the likes of Greivis Vasquez are signing for the same annual salary. In any case, Stan Van Gundy defended the signing Thursday,...

Pistons' deal with Jodie Meeks not too costly

There is no debating Jodie Meeks fills a need. The Pistons were the second-to-last three-point shooting team last season. Meeks shot 40.1% from three-point range for Lakers last season. It's nearly 38% over his six seasons in the league. But you can debate the price tag.
Are the Grizzlies getting better?

Are the Grizzlies getting better?

Free agency season is upon us, which means the most fun ("fun") part of the NBA offseason has begun: sitting around waiting for something to come across Twitter from one of the NBA reporting world's usual suspects—Woj, Marc Stein, Marc Spears, among others—about what the league's 30 teams are up to. Today, Jodie Meeks somehow managed to land a contract worth $20 million (I assume this was done during the US World Cup game on purpose, in hopes that no one would notice).… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

Jodie Meeks, Pistons agree to 3-year, $19.5 million deal

The Pistons were among the first to strike in free agency by agreeing to a multiyear deal with the sharpshooter Meeks, who will likely either challenge for the starting job or be the first guard off the bench. While you were trying to watch the USMNT take on Belgium, the Detroit Pistons and former Los Angeles Lakers swingman Jodie Meeks have agreed to a 3-year, $19.5 million contract, reports Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press confirmed the deal. Shooting guard Jodie Meeks and swingman Cartier Martin joining the Pistons, sources confirm. @WojYahooNBA...

Jodie Meeks got paid, but he didn't get overpaid

Well, maybe he got overpaid a little. But hear me out. The Detroit Pistons elicited some to chuckle and others to scratch their heads when they were the first team to hand out a sizable free agent contract this offeason -- $19 million for three years to Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Jodie Meeks. Examples: Meeks had nice season in L.A., but that's a lot of dough for Jodie Meeks. Wow.

Meeks, Martin fit the bill for 'character guys' the Pistons need

Jodie Meeks fits Stan Van Gundy's plan, deserves his contract

Jodie Meeks is better than you realize, and a great first step in balancing the Pistons' offense. If you're not excited about Jodie Meeks' arrival, well, that's basically the point. Stan Van Gundy was clear with his intentions when meeting with reporters a week before the start of free agency, saying he hoped to sign a handful of unheralded players with specific skills rather than adding a single big name. "If you do it right, I think the splash you make is on the court when the season goes," Van Gundy said last month, according to the Detroit Free Press. "You can improve your team if you...
